3 autumn driving hazards

The fall season brings in beautiful leaves and the perfect excuse to wear those warm, comfy sweaters in your closet. However, autumn also brings some unique hazards on the road. As you get ready for the holidays and bundle up with a hot beverage, keep in mind the potential dangers you may encounter when you drive.

Oklahoma has the most uninsured drivers in the nation

Although the law requires all drivers to have state minimum requirements for auto insurance, not everyone complies. In fact, according to the Insurance Information Institute, Oklahoma ranks number one in having the most uninsured drivers. The most recent statistics show that 25.9 percent of Oklahoma motorists do not have coverage.

3 road conditions that can increase the risk of an accident

You likely pay taxes to your state and county, and a portion of these funds are designated for maintaining and improving the roads you drive on. It is reasonable to expect the responsible jurisdiction to provide a safe driving environment in exchange for the taxes you pay. Sometimes, however, there are road conditions that are dangerous and liable to increase the chances of getting in an accident. Despite conditions that may make driving more dangerous, it is every motorist’s responsibility to drive safely and be proactively aware of the risks that surround them. Consider these three unsafe road conditions, and be on the lookout for them the next time you get behind the wheel:

Do you know these 3 common birth injuries?

You are likely looking forward to giving birth to your child with great anticipation. While your delivery may be smooth and joyous, sometimes complications can occur during pregnancy and delivery. In these circumstances, your baby could become injured. While most deliveries are successful, you should always be prepared if something goes wrong. 

Complications associated with cesarean sections

The number of women giving birth by cesarean section has increased sharply over time, with AmericanPregnancy.org reporting that more than a quarter of today’s American babies are now born in this manner. If you are among those who have C-sections as opposed to traditional vaginal births, it is important that you understand the unique risks associated with doing so, both for you and your baby.

Common injuries from car crashes

When you are involved in a car accident, your injuries may prove relatively minor, meaning they require little, if any, medical treatment. On the other hand, they may prove quite serious, potentially debilitating you for life or even killing you.

3 ways to avoid medication errors

A medication error might sound like a minor problem, but mistakes can cause serious injuries. If your health care provider makes a mistake when prescribing, dispensing or administering drugs, you could face significant health problems. While the core responsibility of avoiding these errors lies with your doctor or pharmacist, you can take some steps to reduce the chances too.

Are older drivers really a menace on the roads?

There are many ways to interpret statistics. For example, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention indicates that 16 senior citizens died in car crashes every day in 2014 and that 648 became hurt daily. In fact, drivers 85 and older are most likely to get involved in a fatality, with the risk increasing noticeably when they turn 70.
